Promoting Science, Reason and Humanist Values in the greater Pittsburgh area.
Our work: Activism and Social Justice
The Pittsburgh Freethought Community (PFC) is looking to work with regional groups and local chapters of national groups on a variety of issues of activism and social justice. This may include but is not limited to women's rights, injustices against people of marginalized/underrepresented races and ethnicities, supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, and many others. For example, we have recently been and/or are currently involved with The March for Science, Pittsburgh PrideFest, the International Day of Peace, and the Summit Against Racism.
Our group's activities rely heavily on the participation of others, so we want to know the interests of the entire Pittsburgh secular humanist community.

Per our bylaws, the PFC Activism and Social Justice Committee is responsible for organizing PFC efforts and events that fall within the umbrella of “activism” as opposed to educational or social. Activism may require in-person participation at a specific time and place, or the encouragement of PFC members and stakeholders to take independent actions such as contacting a government official. These efforts and events may include participation with other groups’ organized events or at events wholly conducted by PFC. The Chair may appoint any number of Organizers to manage specific one-time or recurring events such as a specific Meetup or FB event.
